The Jetsons Live Action Pilot Planned For ABC In The United States

According to entertainment industry news websites – Variety and Deadline, American national broadcaster – ABC has ordered a put pilot for a potential live-action show based on Hanna-Barbera’s space age animated sitcom – The Jetsons. A put pilot is a pilot that the network (in this case, ABC) has agreed to air either as a special or series, not airing the pilot will incur a financial penalty and in a majority of cases, it also means that it will become a full series.

The live-action sitcom will have a multi-camera setup with the story set 100 years into the future. Like the classic cartoon which also premiered on ABC in 1963 (with a 41 episode revival from 1985 for syndication), the show will follow the daily lives of George, Jane, Judy, and Elroy Jetson along with their robot maid Rosie and family dog Astro. The show also had an animated movie and even had a crossover with their stone age counterparts – The Flintstones.

Before the announcement of the live-action pilot, the latest Jetsons project from Warner Bros. was the straight-to-DVD release of The Jetsons and WWE: Robo-WrestleMania! this year.

Back To The Future co-creator and Who Framed Roger Rabbit? director – Robert Zemeckis will executive produce along with Jack Rapke under the Compari Entertainment brand. Gary Janetti, who has written for and produced shows including Fox’s animated sitcom – Family Guy and co-creator of the British comedy series Vicious, will write and executive produce. Compari Entertainment’s Jackie Levine will serve as a co-executive producer. Warner Bros. Television will produce the show in association with Nickelby Inc. and Compari.
